Hello David and Frank, quite clearly when the ship previously sailed for "Irish Lights"

Thank you for comments.
Best Regards

Hi Bendt
What davidships mentions about lifting navigation bouy mooring chains is correct because I believe that she was for many years in the service of The Commissionare of Irish Lights as a navigational bouy tender until replaced by new vessel built in the Nethetlands and with same name around the year 2000.
Best regards

Mainly for lifting navigation buoy mooring chains

I would guess that sheave on the bow was used for deep anchorage.

@ Allan, You are absolutely right, but it was more like a joke to Denis.

@ Malim, it's always nice when a bar is well equipped :)

Remember her well as GRANUAILE when owned by Irish Lights - she had draught Guiness in her bar!

Hello Denis, Looks a bit like a whaler with the bow :-) You're right it's not the type that seen for daily.

Best Regards

An unusual vessel for you to cut, Bendt!
